Blincoe and Curtis in Lucerne 3000



Former Villanovans Adrian Blincoe and Bobby Curtis ran in the 3000 meters yesterday in Lucerne, Switzerland, and finished half a stride apart in 4th and 5th. Blincoe, with a career PR of 7:46.49 (2005), was 4th in 7:56.78, while Curtis, with a PR of 7:50.17i (2008), was 5th in 7:57.28., which is an outdoor PR. Both Blincoe (3000i) and Curtis (5000) won individual NCAA championships while at Villanova. Blincoe is timing his 2010 season to peak for the Commonwealth Games (3-14 October) in Delhi, India, where he will represent New Zealand in the 5000 meters. He is the New Zealand national record holder at that distance (13:10.19).
